Three more Independence Day movies planned?! Plus William Fichtner joins the cast

May 29th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star William Fichtner has joined the cast of the Independence Day sequel.

The actor, who’s a big favourite of FTN’s, will play a “Top Colonel” in the sic-fi sequel.

Interestingly, it is being rumoured that the movie, which was always tipped to be the first in a pair of sequels, may now be the first in a new trilogy.

So that would be four Independence Day movies altogether? Is it just us or is that a bit of overkill? Let us know your thoughts, gang…

Judd Hirsch, Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, Jessie A. Usher, Liam Hemsworth, and Charolette Gainsbourg star in the alien fighting sequel. It’s directed by Rolan Emmerich and co-written by Dean Devlin, the creators of the first movie.

Independence Day 2 invades on June 24th, 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
